EDITORS’ NOTES

The latest member of Wiz Khalifa's Taylor Gang crew, Berner is a Bay Area rapper who's been impressing heads with an avalanche of quality material in recent years, including Drought Season, Blow: Blocks and Boat Docks, and Weekend at Bernie's. Like Wiz (who appears on two tracks here), he's well-known for his smoke-centric lyricism, which is in full effect on Urban Farmer. Mellow, trippy, low-BPM production is the order of the day, as Berner and friends take listeners on a laid-back ride through the clouds. The extensive guest list includes Cali homies IamSu, The Jacka, San Quinn, and Ampichino, plus Juicy J, Chris Brown, Curren$y, Smiggz, Chevy Woods, and Styles P. Don't miss the Barry White–sampling "Fly as Us," the rugged posse cut "21 Guns," and the autobiographical jam "I'm On."

About Berner

Marijuana-obsessed yet prolific MC Berner released several mixtapes during the late 2000s and early 2010s, most of which came out through the San Francisco-based rapper's own Bern One label. Several of the discs -- Drought Season (2008), Traffic (2009), Weekend at Bernie’s (2009), Drought Season 2 (2009), Blow (2010), Blow: Blocks and Boat Docks (2010), and The White Album (2011) -- reached Billboard’s Top R&B/Hip-Hop Albums chart, boasting guest appearances from the likes of Keak da Sneak, B-Legit, Big K.R.I.T., and Killa Kyleon. Mainstream rap radio continued to ignore him for the most part, but the MC charted with his 2015 release 20 Lights (which featured Wiz Khalifa, Migos, and Curren$y) along with 2016's Hempire (which featured Snoop Dogg, Juicy J, and Atmosphere). Months later, Berner issued Packs, featuring Wiz Khalifa, Young Dolph, and French Montana. Maintaining his prolific run, Berner returned in 2017 with a trio of albums in the solo release, Sleepwalkin', and the collaborative albums Vibes (with Styles P) and Tracking Numbers (with Young Dolph). ~ Andy Kellman
